Crowds of fans turn up for Olympic champion Joseph Schooling's book signing session at SPH News Centre

Joseph Schooling is holding a book signing to help raise funds for The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (STSPMF) at the Singapore Press Holdings News Centre today (Nov 21).

Fans started queuing outside the News Centre from 9am, three hours before the the books went on sale at noon.

Clearly, people still have the Schooling fever as fans queued to meet the man himself while others attempted to take selfies with the swimming star from the crowd.

The swimmer is signing copies of two books published by The Straits Times Press for the first 50 buyers in the queue, reports The Straits Times.

The 21-year-old will also sign 23 limited edition copies of his book Schooling Joseph, written by veteran sports journalists Rohit Brijnath and Chan U-Gene.

The sale of these limited edition copies raised $28,000 for the STSPMF, which provides financial assistance to children from poor homes.

The second book about the swimmer is titled From Kid to King and is a children's book written by ST news editor Marc Lim and illustrated by freelance artist Darel Seow.

Twenty per cent of proceeds from the Nov 21 sale of both books will also go to the STSPMF.
